Christmas??!! in July??!!!

Well for some of us who have been making samples for the Paper Boutique Vol2: Creatie christmas CD its been christmas for a good few months now. So much so that my little boy keeps asking how many sleeps till christmas!!

Kris hasnt helped this week at the Polka Doodle team, she said ....

         We all get tired of making Christmas cards long before the actual day. but I think that's why we have CHRISTMAS in JULY!
Thats right Kris wants us to make a christmas card. Luckily with the millions (well ok not millions but lots) of new products the fabulous Nikky has designed and released over the last few weeks there is soooo many christmas ideas floating about.

I made a tri fold card the same way as my Retro Robots card a couple of weeks ago.  I used polka dot paper in blue and pink and the christmas lyrics papers in the same colour way - all from the Paper Boutique Vol 2 - Creative Christmas. I also printed a Sentiment from the same CD.

I then stamped Joy from the new stamp doodles and matted it using blue dots cut with nestabilities. I coloured the image with Promarkers, glittered the snow with stickles and glossy accent'ed the letters.

So if you are feeling christmassy head on over to Polkadoodles and see the rest of the festive feast. Whilst you are there check out the FAB competition that has just started ..... am very jealous I cant enter :(
